"...an inventive, moving and excellent EP with just two band members, making 'Victory Advancement' a great example of the benefits of post-rock downsizing." - Leonard's Lair webzine
"...Their sounds, have engendered the atmosphere of Do Make Say Think, Explosions In The Sky, M83 and Hammock." - Friends Of Mine records (Japan)
"...This is the moment where Roncatto Braathen show that they aren't all wires, bolts and circuits and that human flesh -- maybe even a heart -- drives this band." - The Silent Ballet
“…a haunting and ethereal mix of electronics, samples and guitar effects that is filled with emotion and a huge palette of sounds.” – Terrascope Online
